For the one or two people who bother to read this thread and noticed that I've removed the games from the first post.

I've removed the info because I've gone through and updated the information and am putting it into a spreadsheet that combines the Windows, Linux and Mac game info into one which I'd like to have up by the end of the week.

Left to do:
Test with Goldberg (Currently only works with Vista+ so use SmartSteamEmu for 2000 and XP)
Test with OS <Vista for each game and for the working ones list the method used to get it to work.

I have a Windows XP install that I've disabled ethernet/LAN drivers to keep it offline. I want to start moving my XP games from my Steam library over there -- what's the best way to do this? I've downloaded Tomb Raider Anniversary off my steam library as a test and tried launching without Steam which it does not.

I've downloaded Steamless from github but it's not in a launchable/usable format and the readme says I need to compile it..?

Sorry if this is off-topic, but it has just occurred to me in relation to this thread, are there/have there been any fan-made server emulators for games that were originally multiplayer only, but the official servers are now down, but said emulators allow to play PvE content locally?

There are for Steam on a certain forum and they work well (SmartSteaEmu and Goldberg). Currently for other online store emulators the equivalents allow offline gameplay but not LAN like the steam emulators. (There might be one that does for Epic though).

As for non-emulation it would be game specific like WOW private servers and the like. I'm not a multiplayer fan so I don't track those.
It would be nice to track games that required proprietary servers where you couldn't setup your own server but now can but the list is likely small.
